Never Apologize

I enjoyed a somewhat controversial career at university, as you've probably heard.

One incident sticks out. It involved my views on the presence of Africans in England, namely, my instruction to a visiting African scholar to "go back to Africa." After all, I continued, why should Europeans tolerate the presence of Africans (and others) in our homelands, since Europeans had been kicked out of theirs? A perfectly sound position and one which was, as is my custom, intended to provoke.

It caused quite a storm, as you may imagine. I was not expelled. Instead, I was brought before a committee consisting of senior tutors, college academics, and university officials. I sat alone before them as they gave me a series of sanctimonious lectures and stern warnings. Curiously I was not asked to apologise; I wouldn't have done so if asked. I think I was also given some sort of minor punishment, the nature of which I've forgotten now.

A few days later I received in the post a letter on university letterhead confirming my official censure. I framed it and hung it on the wall, where it remained for the rest of the term.

Political correctness will do the white man in and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Aristotle, said it best. Tolerance and Apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.

One should have suspected that the Admiral was at the van of the 'back to Africa' movement.

'Not an apology' apology doesn't count.

First, well said LBF...after all they have a continent all their own.
You went to school in England yet learned, it seems, little of the British way of telling you something. The "powers that be"by their actions in your case, at the very least condoned and, most likely, agreed with and supported your remarks. It's what they didn't do that speaks volumes. That is why you were not made or even asked to apologize. You received a token reprimand to keep the M'gumbas quiet and avoid a scandal or demonstration. In that respect they followed in a long tradition among the English elite in their treatment of white nationalists.
Look at the case of General Reginald Dyer at Amritsar in 1919. He had a whole rigamarole go on to keep the natives from getting restless but in the end The Hunter Commission did not impose any penal or disciplinary action because Dyer's actions were condoned by various superiors. However, he was finally found guilty of a mistaken notion of duty and relieved of his command on 23 March. He had been recommended for a CBE as a result of his service in the Third Afghan War; this recommendation was cancelled on 29 March 1920.
That was it. He got a token punishment after a formal circus as did you BUT as of 2014 you have not apologized for giving the kaffir travel directions and the British Government has not apologized for Amritsar. The Pommy elite, as I learned in England and later Rhodesia, "take care of their own"....they obviously liked you.

All races get their own countries--continents even--except for whites. They are to watch complacently while their own nations are trashed until the entire world...is third world.
